On Sunday, Rami Malek took home an Oscar for his role as Freddie Mercury in Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody during the 91st Academy Awards.

The 37-year-old was competing against Bradley Cooper for his role in A Star Is Born, among a few others. As he accepted the award, Malek dedicated his speech to his Egyptian immigrant parents. 

"My mom is in here somewhere. Oh, I love you lady," he said at the start of his speech. "My family, thank you for all of this. My dad didn't get to see me do any of this, but I think he's looking down on me right now," he added.

He took a moment to celebrate Freddie Mercury, before embracing his Egyptian roots.

"We made a film about a gay man, an immigrant who lived his life just unapologetically himself. The fact that I'm celebrating him and this story tonight is proof that we are longing for stories like this."

"I am the son of immigrants from Egypt, I'm a first generation American"

"Very proud moment"

"He is a champion"


Before his epic win, several people helped Malek fix his bow-tie

And he seemed to have his nerves put together ... up until he fell off stage

After the ceremony ended, the actor fell off the Oscars' stage ... right into the seated audience area. Paramedics rushed to the scene to help Malek up. 

Photos of the star tumbling down circulated on social media soon after. According to People, the star "did his best to hold on his Best Actor statue aloft." 

However, he missed out on taking an official photo with other actors who won awards during the ceremony. 

People on social media were pretty concerned over the news. Many took to Twitter to ask the actor if he's OK. 

People were worried

Others had their own theories

Luckily, he's fine ... and well, he's an Oscar winner!

His epic Oscar win comes months after taking home a Golden Globe for his grand performance in Bohemian Rhapsody.

"I'm beyond moved. My heart is pounding out of my chest right now," he said during his acceptance speech.

"This is a profound honor to receive this and to be counted amongst such extraordinary actors. I'm privileged to be counted among you."
